Tango centerboard?

Dinghies, day sailers, world cruisers. Many small sailboats make ideal rowboats or low-speed power boats.

Tango centerboard?

Post by migratingcoconut » Sun Jul 07, 2019 5:45 am

Hi, I'm building a Tango, and have the transom and four frame pieces done. I'm starting on the centerboard trunk. I haven't yet assembled anything on the building frame.
I'm just anticipating the next steps wondering where am I going to get a centerboard? Anybody have any suggestions on where to get one? I live in the Tampa Fl area.

Isn't the centerboard built up (plywood and lumber)?

On the Glen-L website under the additional specifications and photos page it lists the ballast weight as 1" steel CB.

I got a 300 mm x 300 mm x 6 mm steel plate (that I encased inside my centreboard of my Glen-L 13) fabricated from a general steel fabricators. Surely you can just ring around your local area?
